Danish Flag to be Unfurled for Royal Christening - Michael Polley, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Danish Flag to be Unfurled for Royal Christening - Michael Polley, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

The Danish national flag is to fly over Tasmania’s Parliament over the coming weekend to mark the christening of The Crown Prince of Denmark.

The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Michael Polley, directed the flag be flown to celebrate the happy event.

“It’s only the third time the flag of a foreign country has been unfurled over the Tasmanian seat of Government,” Mr Polley said.

“The first was in celebration of the marriage of Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary, and the second, on the event of the birth of The Crown Prince of Denmark.

Mr Polley said the gesture was an illustration of the drawing together of the people of Tasmania and Denmark.

“I know many Australians and particularly Tasmanians have a keen interest in what is happening with the Danish royals especially since the arrival of the new future King of Denmark.

“The Danish flag will fly alongside Australia’s over Tasmania’s Parliament while celebrations are held.” Mr Polley Said.

The christening will occur this Saturday at Copenhagen's Christianborg Palace Chapel at 11am local time (9pm AEDT).
